And so it is done!! 30 days of one stroke painting, spread over about 60 days whoops! But I completed my challenge, despite losing inspiration several times, teaching my first workshop (!) and having some kind of RSI in my ‘hyper-mobile’ wrist! It’s been way tougher than I thought it would be, but the sense of accomplishment is awesome. I’ve fallen in love with one stroke even more, finding it to be even more fabulous and versatile than I first thought. Here’s to more crazy self-challenges!
‘On the job’ Sugar skull from Halloween – private client
‘On the job’ sugar skulls – intricate lacy forehead pieces requested and delivered! Two fun girls going out on the town for Halloween!
Pregnancy bump painting using one stroke technique! 3 different one strokes for the rainbow, and “teddy bear” combo for Bambi. Black starblends used for shading.
The next installment in my painting ‘one stroke for one month’ challenge! Some of these were painted in my own time at home, some were painted ‘on the job’.

Next month I am teaching my very first workshop – in Northern Ireland! In preparation I am creating different one stroke designs every day – practising my technique and rediscovering the endless possibilities one can create with one strokes! I simply adore this method of painting, with its mouthwatering array of colour combinations, and the effortless blending effect achieved with one stroke of the brush ❤ Here’s to the next 24/25 days!!
Rainbows are quite possibly my favourite thing to paint! I love to improvise and create unique different designs on the spot. Here are two fairly recent creations.
The left was a girl at a Pride event.
The right was a little boy who wanted me to paint his dreams being eaten by nightmares!!

Quiet day at the office? What do you do when you’re bored at work? This is what I get up to! Livi Lollipop hand doodles ❤
Always so amazed and so grateful to receive feedback like this!! xo
Livi Lollipop face painted at our daughter’s 4th birthday party last weekend and we would definitely recommend her and book her again. Not only are her face painting and designs fantastic and some of the best and most creative we’ve seen, but she is absolutely wonderful with the children and generally lovely; warm, patient, very professional, enchanting and tons of fun! My daughter, her friends and our family loved meeting her! Thank you so much Livi, you made our little girl’s day!
Love, rainbows and fairy dust,
